paper city tattoo

We’ve built our studio on the core values of respect and integrity. We carry none of the rock star attitudes found in many tattoo shops today and certainly don’t price as high as our local competitors.

Customer service is our main priority here and we promise to ensure every customer feels respected and catered to for the best possible experience available in the tattoo and piercing industry.

We are the oldest tattoo location in Western Massachusetts and collectively we carry over 40 years of experience.

We have award winning artists, some of which have been tattooing over 20 years themselves! We offer 100% free consultations to make sure that custom tattoo you want is exactly how we design it for you.

We also take walk-ins 7 days a week from 12-8pm for all of you spur of the moment types!

Everyone who works at our establishment has all medical certifications required by the city of Holyoke and the state of Massachusetts to operate at the highest level of safety and cleanliness.

We encourage anyone checking us out for the first time to not just take our word for it, but to also see what so many of our other clients have to say! Feel free to look through our reviews on websites like Google, Facebook and even Yelp so you can see what others have had to say about their experiences here at Paper City Tattoo.

We look forward to meeting new faces and cater to people from all walks of life. If you ever have questions we take phone calls 24 hours a day to prove that our customer service will go unmatched.

Feel free at any time of day or night to call with questions about anything your heart desires at 413-534-TAT2 (8282) and thank you so much from everyone here at Paper City Tattoo!
